“One of the best clam chowders on the coast...”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

The chowder here is simple -- clams and potatoes in a light creamy soup base. Not too thick and not too thin and not spiced up. No bacon to overshadow the taste of the clams. Nice tender clams. Made fresh every day. Great people, great service. Nothing fancy. We often eat here when we are on the coast. Also has good seafood and a great grilled crab and cheese sandwich or shrimp and cheese sandwich.

“Good food”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Strange service seems to be par on the coast. Servers aren't very attentive. Never check back. Never refill drinks. Food was good. Reasonable prices.

“very good seafood”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Stopped for lunch. They were short handed with wait staff but the waitress did a very good job.
So we did wait a bit for food. I had sauteed shrimp with side salad. Excellent! Not over cooked.
Family member had chowder and fried fish. Very good. Prices seemed reasonable for tourist area.

“Still the best clam chowder place!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

We stop here every year for a bowl of chowder and some food for our kids and it never ever disappoints! Great, buttery clam chowder with real clams for a good price. The fries are addictive, the servings are decent and the prices are reasonable. Great little dive in a fun town to visit, been going here for many, many years.

Kids love the chew chew train that circles the restaurant.

“Great Buffet with awesome view!!”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We ate here for our first morning on the Oregon Coast. It was actually lunch for us. They had a fabulous buffet. Everything was free. The salad bar was wonderful. Plenty of fresh veggies and fruit. They had pizza and many other sides....all buffet style and good considering it IS IN FACT a buffet. They even had dessert on the buffet. It's a beautiful view of the ocean from any table in the restaurant. I didn't expect this fabulous view when we parked and decided to eat at this buffet for our first lunch in Oregon!
